BENEFITS OF AN AUTO FILTER
2.1 The leaves rotate so the cake that is formed is of uniform thickness. A uniform
cake results in :
-
less sweet water usage.
-
lower sucrose loss.
-
greater overall sugar recovery.
2.2 Is ideally designed for semi or full automation.
2.3 Filtration, extraction and cake washing can be carried out in the same unit without
the necessity of stopping or opening the Filter.
2.4 The only time the Filter is opened is for changing the filter cloths and very rarely
for changing Filter Leaves.
